    Turning Corners & New Directions

    Seva

    Thoughts as Spring 2024 Arrives: I’m not going to say that the winter has flown by, but I have skimmed through it in a daze of busy-ness and extra paperwork [or data entry anyway] brought about by the necessity of switching POS system part way through last year, and maybe just plain winter blues, I don’t feel that I have accomplished a lot so far. If you read my New Year’s post [the first of 2024— Make Time]then you’ll know what I’m talking about when I say I haven’t. I haven’t made Time for much…

    Terlingua Rain

    Terlingua Rain - Salve Family

    A Few of Our Favorite Things! With Christmas right around the corner, I have been thinking about some of my favorite things at Over the Rainbow. Many of our products are just made to be Stocking Stuffers, and I can’t think of anything much better to find in the big sock on Christmas Morning than a tin of Terlingua Rain Creosote Salve or Lip Balm. Both of these products are essentials for dry winter weather, particularly here in the West Texas desert. It’s so satisfying to carry products that we believe in, that align so…

For those that don’t know, Over the Rainbow is closed on Wednesdays, so we won’t be at the store tomorrow, and we are closed on Thanksgiving. However, we will be here on Friday, and all weekend. The store is running a Sale for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. (Sale…

We’re decorated inside for the holidays already, and by next week we’ll be lighting up the night [though always mindful of the Dark Sky Initiative that is keeping our area one of the most beautiful for stargazing…
